Happy Valentine's Day & Happy Single Awareness Day

Happy Valentine's Day for sweet couples out there!

Happy Single Awareness Day for single persons out there!

It's typically bizarre and amusing that many are so happy to spend so much on a very common day of Feb 14. Same applies to Mother's Day and Father's Day. During these three days, flowers and food in restaurants (classy restaurants in particular) will definitely burn a hole in your pocket if you ever patronize the florist shops and restaurants.

Another thing that is closely related to Valentine's Day is the food of love (chocolate). I just wonder if you love your another half (or halves =.=) so much, why are you so eager to sabotage their health (no offense)? Many studies report that chocolate is good for health in helping to prevent heart disease (Malaysians' first killer) and cancers (every four of Malaysians, one is contracted with cancer). But bear in mind, if you read the articles carefully, cocoa is the one which is good for health, and not chocolate. Many actually mistakenly take chocolate as cocoa. Try to think of it, chocolate is processed snack or drink, correct me if you think there are no preservative or excessive sugar in it. So in the way you adore your lover, you are actually sabotaging them. See Feb 14 brings so many adverse effects to us. :(

Nevertheless if you utilize Feb 14 and spend it fruitfully (no chocolate, no great restaurants with the perfectly pleasant ambience, no flowers) with your another half, it certainly will enhance your relationship. There are still many things to give and do la on this particular day.

Anyway may God bless the sweet couples and not to forget to take care of the single persons too!!!

Chocolate is undeniably a threat to our health... And yet, sadly, there are so many out there are unaware of it.. =.=

If you truly love someone, you wouldn't let him/her spend on those cannot-be-kept things like food, even worse is those that harm your health..

Personally I prefer to make my own gift for my love one (if i have..).. Only that can show your sincerity...

well, chocolate is definitely not that healthy, as you said. But remember, there is certain composition of choc that can make you happy or bring out positive feeling! Perhaps, in many diseases, psychological aspect does play an important role in the progression of the disease. 'So be happy everyday!'

Agree that spending lots of money out there on valentine day is quite 'stupid', self home-cooked food by your another half is definitely great and sweet oh!

Agree. Sweet things can make us feel better in the sense that it triggers psychological effects.

By the way I read an article few weeks ago, dark chocolate contains flavanols and calcium which is good for our bone, but in most of the confectionery product (those contains chocolate) , there is oxalate which is believed to be an inhibitor of calcium absorption and sugar which is believed to be calcium exertion... How far is this true? Correct me if this is wrong...
